We’ve featured Dan Carr’s desktops before. They’re always beautiful and functional, and this one is no different. The photo of a quiet, cloudy winter morning in Paris makes for a great backdrop for his widgets, all arranged so they don’t detract from the image, but don’t distract when it’s time to work.
Lifehacker reader Pluginbby is a huge Muse fan and modelled this week’s featured desktop off the art for one of his favourite albums, The Origin of Symmetry. Now, every time he sits down to work, he has useful data on the left, a reminder of his favourite tunes on the right and plenty of room to work.
This week’s featured desktop, from Lifehacker reader Silver_January, is similar to last week’s sleepy fox desktop. However, it offers different on-screen information, most notably stronger shortcuts to apps and folders, and more useful weather data in the centre. The wallpaper is sharp looking too.
A combination of well placed widgets, sharp use of Objectdock, text shortcuts and an adorable wallpaper make this week’s featured desktop worth duplicating. Reader M. Adams built this two-toned setup with no icons on the desktop and an auto-hidden taskbar to keep organised, and created a desktop that was a joy to look at even when he wasn’t using the system.
